Sonar systems with small physical apertures are easier to mount on small vessels and remotely operated vehicles (ROVs). Such systems however are limited in terms of angular resolution. Although wide-bandwidth signals may be used to increase the range resolution of a sonar system, angular resolution is unaffected. Such limitations can be overcome if the region of interest in the underwater environment is insonified from a number of different angles, and this low resolution information reconstructed into a high resolution image of the region. This paper proposes a reconstruction approach based on a Hopfield neural network. This approach is shown to perform better than the inverse Radon transform for image reconstruction under both noisy and noise-less conditions. To verify these claims, results are presented using both real and simulated sonar data
